The PS mayor of Boulogne-sur-Mer, Frédéric Cuviller, then announced that he had “took the decision to allow the installation of goods outside by decrees authorizing the occupation of the public domain, in order to support [les] local traders who have requested it. “” Occupation of the public domain is, of course, granted free of charge and can begin tomorrow Saturday. Traders who wish to do so are invited to contact the town hall, he said in a message posted on his Facebook page.
